In a medium bowl, mix sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, garlic powder and about 2 tbsp of the Cheddar cheese. Fold in crabmeat, hot sauce and seafood seasoning.

Serve with crackers, bread pieces, or pretzel sticks.

In Mary­land, the blue crab is king. This recipe is includ­ed in my newest book, The Desert­er and Oth­er Sto­ries. Two of the sto­ries take place on Chesa­peake Bay. I absolute­ly had to add a col­lec­tion of crab appe­tiz­ers to the book. (They are also on my recipe page.)

Look for a new recipe here every Wednes­day. On Sat­ur­day, look for a post of inter­est to readers—especially read­ers of cozy mys­ter­ies.
